Flight Centre Travel Group will lift the curtain on a range of exciting new concert travel packages following an official multi-year partnership announced today with the world’s leading live entertainment company, Live Nation.
Flight Centre will become the official concert travel package partner of Live Nation Australia and New Zealand allowing music fans to access exclusive travel packages to their favourite concerts and events across Australia and New Zealand for the first time.
The agreement will see Flight Centre combining airfares, accommodation and car hire with preferential access to tickets and VIP concert experiences at Live Nation shows.
Flight Centre founder and managing director Graham ‘Skroo’ Turner said the partnership with Live Nation was an exciting one.
“We see a huge opportunity for our travel business across entertainment and, in particular, the live concert business,’’ Mr Turner said.
“By packaging bespoke flight, accommodation and Live Nation concert tickets for Australians and New Zealanders, the partnership creates a one-stop shop for our customers.
“Now, Flight Centre and Live Nation are going to make that journey a simple and seamless experience,’’ he said.
Michael Coppel, president and CEO of Live Nation Australia and New Zealand, said partnering with Flight Centre made perfect sense.
“Now our guests will be able to enjoy the best experiences possible when attending a Live Nation show. We are looking forward to a fantastic and mutually successful partnership,’’ Mr Coppel said.
